21 Oct Smart Maintenance for Smart Factories – Driving Industrie 4.0 through smart maintenance
National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech) 2015
With Industrie 4.0, Germany is on the brink of a new industrial age in which smart factories – the intelligent factories of the future – will occupy a central role. In order to realise this vision, it will also be necessary to ensure that smart factories benefit from smart maintenance that is equipped to meet tomorrow’s challenges. Smart maintenance will help to secure jobs in industry, manage the complexity within smart factories and drive Industrie 4.0 by acting as an engine of innovation and a source of knowledge.
